5 Ways to Get Your Summer Home Ready for the Season

The countdown to summer has begun (it’s 59 days in case you were wondering), and if you are just itching to get to your vacation home at the Lake of the Ozarks, you aren’t alone. Your luxury home at the Lake of the Ozarks should feel like an escape, and you may just be needing one of those right about now. As summer gets closer, here are a few things that can be done to get your home ready for the busy, bustling summer season!

Have Your HVAC Serviced

Coming back for a hot summer weekend at your lake home is going to look much different if you get here to find that your air conditioner is broken. Now is a great time to make sure that your HVAC system is running smoothly and ready to keep you cool all summer long. The filter will need to be checked, and it’s always a good idea to have your unit tuned up annually to help extend its life and keep it running efficiently. If you aren’t sure where to start, our team can offer some referrals if you need the names of some companies at the Lake.

Have The Windows Cleaned

The glory of a Lake home is often found in those floor to ceiling windows that showcase a breathtaking lake view. After a wet winter, and pollen-filled spring, if there’s one thing that your windows will need, it’s a good detailing. Hiring a company that can come out and clean your windows can be a great way to ensure that when you first walk into your luxury home at the Lake of the Ozarks, you are greeted with that sparkling lake view. Having your window screens inspected is also a good idea. Some spring and summer mornings are going to be begging you to throw open the windows and let the breeze in, but if there are holes in the screens, you may get more than just a breeze - mosquitos and other bugs could make their way in as well.

Check Outdoor Plumbing

This can include outdoor spigots, irrigation systems, and even plumbing down on your dock. If your plumbing was winterized, now is a great time to make sure that they made it through the winter intact as well as remove the insulators and turn on the water.

For your in-ground irrigation system, you will want to hire a landscaping company at the Lake of the Ozarks to come out and make sure that it weathered the winter and even provide a tune-up to ensure that the system is operating efficiently.

Have the Roof Inspected

It’s always a good idea to have the roof of your home looked at regularly. Even a quick look could indicate that there are minor problems that began over the winter. Having them repaired now can help ensure that they won’t become major issues.

Have Gutters & Downspouts Cleaned

Spring showers are going to mean that you will want a place for the rainwater to go - and that’s not spilling over the gutters because of blockages. Hiring a professional is a must when it comes to luxury homes, as many of them aren’t just several stories high, but al built into precarious sides of bluffs and over water - hire a professional to get these cleaned out before summer and you’ll be glad that you did!
